For the new season, designer Manish Arora opted to stray from the path followed by most fashion designers and chose to take a totally unique approach with his spring 2013 collection. The designer is known for the innovative, unique patterns and shapes used in his collections, but it seems that for the spring 2013 season Manish Arora decided to explore the vast world of ideas and take inspiration from various places.

Mermaid meets Madagascar meets urban glamor girl seem to be the main themes that stand out from first glimpse at the collection and these interesting, clashing elements create a very distinct, eye catching style that some labeled as a bit too brave. However, the unique manner the fabrics were layered, the interesting shapes and exquisite color pattern make this collection addictive from start to finish.

The combination of old meets new elements added even more style to the bold collection, making it a perfect choice for the ladies that are not afraid of testing the power of opulent designs. The lines featured in the collection underlined casualness and femininity, making it perfect for the comfort loving sweethearts, as with garments that seemed to be inspired from salwar kameez with the pieces being accessorized separately, to stylish skinny fit trousers, scale-like leggings, origami-looking blouses and chic deux-pieces the collection featured all the elements a fashion forward diva should own in her spring 2013 wardrobe.

The sensational coloration of the collection is definitely characteristic to the designer, as Manish Arora has been playing with metallic, multi-chromatic fabrics for the past couple of years and because this spring season glamor elements have been big, the designer went wild with pigments and prints. From fabulous irresistible warm pastels to elegant black garments, the designer chose the most feminine color palette to add elegance to his designs. Fabulous tones of light pistachio green, turquoise, light orange, lavender tones and plenty of gold tones gave the collection a vibrant, fun and energetic appeal. The prints were apparently inspired from Madagascar as from stylish lion head prints to tiger head prints and leopard prints to chic antique dangling jewelry motifs, the collection was filled with eye catching elements that made sure to keep the collection out of the boring zone. Definitely not for the faint-hearted, the spring 2013 fashion collection signed Manish Aurora is worth all our admiration as each design reveals the sublime craftsmanship and color mixing talent of the designer, so check it out and find the elements that will make you stop traffic this upcoming spring!
